Creative Journaling Kit

One of the things I truly love to do is give gifts.... there is a fantastic pleasure in giving with joy something that you think the person will truly love.  I recently took part in a swap that was to pull together a Creative Journaling Kit.  We did not need to include the journal, just items to make the journaling fun... and we needed to make it something that could be transportable.... 

I chose to go with the colors listed in my partner's profile... she mentioned she loved black and white with punches of teal.  I took that into the contents as well.... I hope she loves receiving it as much as I loved creating it.

The container: A cigar-like box purchased from Michaels... used scrapbook papers to cover the front and sides... painted the edges and inside lid teal.

Inside the box: journal prompts (on the lid), pens, pencils, watercolors, squirt bottle, tags, paper ribbon, stamps, stamp pad, tape roller, scrapbook papers in shade of grey, white, teal, alphabet rub ons and probably a few other things I can't remember... lol

The key to journaling is having things readily available... gather your own kit together... make it easy to write/paint/sketch your story.

What is your 'must have' in your journaling kit?

...scatter joy...


  1. I was so sad that I didn't do this swap, it looked like so much fun! You did an amazing job, and I bet your partner is going to be so happy.

    In my kit? Yikes, I consider just about anything to be a potential for my art, but I must say a good white pen is a must must must!

  2. That is beautiful.If it were me i'd drool allover it!I love black and white and the houndstooth pattern is so sharp!


Please share you thoughts & ideas!
